Eight years ago, former New York mayor Rudy Guiliani tried his luck at the Republican nomination.
Didn't last very long.
New Jersey governor Chris Christie tried his hand this time, and came up short.
The two elected candidates from the Big Apple struggled around the country, but not Donald Trump.
Now you can start to see Trump's team coming together.
If you thought Trump would be a lone wolf, it looks like he's pulling Northeastern Republican establishment figures into his campaign world.
Maybe he's not a loose cannon, but someone who knows how to play the game.
And play both parties.
How do you think Hillary feels watching these Big Apple heavyweights coming together against her.
